Topic: (Expression) Do you talk AND walk?
Posted: Sunday, April 23, 2017 2:43:09 PM
A few days ago while watching the news on TV, I heard Nick Clegg saying "It's not good enough to talk the talk and not walk the walk," in his speech. I think it was an old clip. Anyway, I had learned the expression from you before so I could understand it. What I learn from you are very useful.
Thanks, Parser.

Change "of which" to "whose" and it will be a lot easier to understand.

I can understand the statement perfectly well and don't think there is any problem with it but I can also understand why some people have a go at it; some do take others' words or writing literally when the figurative approach is appropriate.
